Beauty in Writing

“It isn’t enough to want to write a story or novel or poem; the writer must also want to make something beautiful–even though that might mean making it ugly…. For art to be successful and beauty to be appreciated, it has to be created out of one’s totality–the light and dark parts, with nothing held back.” Stephen Dobyns, Best Words, Best Order
